Discursos historicos de la vida, y muerte de Don Antonio de Zuniga Ö.
Lisbon, Antonio Alvarez, 1618. - Woodcut arms on title-page, woodcut initial letters, woodcut printer's device on H7@v. (8), 63 leaves. Small 4?, mid-twentieth-century antique mottled calf, spine gilt, crimson morocco label, gilt armorial supra-libris of Miguel de Faria on covers, edges rouged. Waterstains, nevertheless in fine condition. Armorial bookplate of Miguel [Braga Leite] de Faria (see Avelar Duarte, @Ex-libris portugueses her ldicos, 1150; the supra-libris conforms to 1149). ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. In eight @discursos and a @narraciÛn, Miranda traces the genealogy of the Z?Òiga family, sketches Z?Òiga's life and character, and describes the funeral rites held in Lisbon in his memory. After studying at Salamanca, Z?Òiga entered military service in 1577. Following action in Italy, he was sent to Flanders and distinguished himself at the capture of Rosendael (1580). Appointed captain, Z?Òiga became a trusted aide to the Duke of Parma. Miranda provides much information on Z?Òiga's participation in the campaigns in Flanders and France from 1589-96, as Philip II sought to win the French throne through military and diplomatic maneuvers. In 1601 Z?Òiga was sent to Lisbon, first as commander of Spanish forces there and later as Captain-General of Portugal, where his first assignment was to help plan the abortive Spanish invasion of Ireland. Preceding the @Discursos are four sonnets in Spanish, including one by Juan de Torres Portugal and another by Manoel de Govea de Vasconcelos, a sonnet in Portuguese, and two @dÈcimas in Spanish by AlfÈrez Sotomayor.Miranda, a soldier before entering the service of the dukes of BraganÁa, published several collections of dialogues on moral and philosophical subjects. The @Discursos is his only published work in Spanish.---- Arouca M397. InnocÍncio VI, 152: calling for viii, 63 pp. Barbosa Machado III, 434. Antonio II, 90. Palau 172173. Pinto de Mattos p. 402.
